First Chapter Review: Angels at the Gate by T.K. Thorne
The first chapter of this epic historical adventure novel was sent to me by the author.
Angels at the Gate is a story of adventure and the power of love, a compelling saga based on historical research about the ancient biblical world of Abraham, Sodom and Gomorrah, and the woman who "became a pillar of salt."
COVER: Stunning. The color close up of the woman against the pencil drawn background is definitely eye-catching. The pencil drawn figures remind me of drawings from old picture Bibles and prayer books we used to own.
FIRST CHAPTER: The reader meets fifteen-year-old Adira, or Adir as her father calls her. She is secretly being raised as a boy and learning much from her father; though she finds obedience difficult. She is taken with two mysterious strangers, especially the graceful, muscular Raph.
CONTINUE READING: Fascinating! That's what this first chapter is. Adira is narrating, which draws the reader close to her from the very beginning. The eloquent style is so appropriate for a story of this nature and the time period in which it takes place. Being familiar with the Biblical significance of this woman, I am eager to see how this novel unfolds.
